After a couple of weeks with no symptoms, I was beginning to think I had the Menieres under control again. Unfortunately going out on Thursday night for the first time in three years was either brave or very, very stupid. It was a great night though and if you get the opportunity to go to one of Sant Angelo’s tribute nights in Wetherby make sure you go. The food was fabulous, the entertainment truly amazing and the company first class. Unfortunately the combination of wine and loud music proved too much at once which meant I spent most of yesterday afternoon laid on the sofa watching sport!! Yes, it was such a chore!!
Liverpool Football ClubOn the 3rd June 2014 my beloved Liverpool FC turned 122 years old. A BIG Happy Birthday. Thank you for giving me endless heart attacks, anxiety and stress but most of all immense pleasure – I will never, ever forget Istanbul!! Nor will I ever be prouder of a club and city that has taken on the establishment and are on the brink of justice at last.
Rugby League & ScholarshipThe biggest sacrifice I have had to make this year was to surrender my Leeds Rhinos season ticket. Scholarship training clashed with the majority of home games. It is a price I am willing to pay to support my son in the quest for his future career plans. I laughed when a parent told us to turn the scholarship place down as it was ‘uneconomically viable.’ Really? I don’t put a price on my son’s future or his happiness. Besides trips to Sheffield are still more economically viable than sitting in a pub all afternoon. I can’t believe that we have five weeks left of the scholarship programme and despite some people, Wes and I have gotten so much from being in a professional club. This week has been the expression of interest week where professional clubs put their names forward to speak to players. It is a fascinating process and one we are thankful of being a part of, whatever the outcome. We have thoroughly enjoyed it and have made lots of friends for life. We will find out over the next few weeks, what the future holds and whatever the outcome I am incredibly proud of Wes for showing such professionalism and determination to be the best he can be, which is all we can be.
promoting the book with a zero budget. Hopefully this will only ever happen with this novel. It’s very frustrating as grants are only available for unpublished authors yet published authors have to work with no income. However, without promotion the book won’t be successful – chicken and egg!!
As you can see I have an incredibly busy week and look forward to the scholarship game on Saturday and my little legs has a football presentation at the same time at the rugby match – if only I could be cloned!! Mind you, I’m not sure the world is ready for two of me!
A quick thank you to all my twitter followers on both the book (@BeyondthePast1) and my account (@CharlespR2D2), old and new and to say I have exceeded 30,000 views on Google Plus – that is insane! I love the support from all of you, please keep it coming.
